When the use case of the Simple Wikipedia is better understood, it may even
make room for more simple projects as in simple projects in the biggest
This is quite an interesting thought. The language used by Simple
English is (apparently) derived from two defined "simplified versions"
of English which were deliberately designed - have there been projects
to do the same for, say, French or Spanish, or would we have to do the
heavy lifting ourselves?
My attempt at a constructive contribution to this thread would
be to suggest that every Simple Wikipedia language, no matter
large or small, should start at a Simple Incubator. The incubator
seems a proven concept (it has delivered live babies, yes?).
To me it seems a no-brainer that Simple Communities in every
language would only activate a sub-set of their languages
community, and this implies to me that as such the community
could do with bootstrapping in the fashion that incubators do.
